Christmas 2007

The holiday season is just around the corner with a few days left to go.

First of all, I wish to thank all the regular readers and to those who have left comments, contributing the on-going discussion of personal finance.

Second of all, I must apologise to the same regular readers for the lack for articles over the last 6 or so weeks. My life getting complicated and blogging must take a back seat for the time being. However, a couple of updates.

  1. We have change over to a new car, purchased on a novated leased agreement. The procees from the sale  of our previous car went to paying off all of our credit card debts (~$12K). The remainder was put into an online high interest bearing account.
  2. Reduce our credit card liability by cutting the credit limit on the cards to $1000.
  3. One of the complications was things are not being done, so I am trying to embrace the GTD or similar philosophy . Shall let you know how I go.
  4. Start to think about schooling for our son, so expenses for these are sure to mount up.
Third of all, if you are able to spend some time with your love ones, please do so as they are the things that money can't provide.

Merry Christmas!

congratulations on paying off the credit cards, must be a nice feeling to get rid of them.
I am finding GTD helpful, I think it takes a while but it is certainly helping. Have a great Christmas :)
